Small carpathians
Svätý Jur (katastrálne územie)


Biely kriz (the White Cross), a lovely location in the Small Carpathians,is well-known among tourists, fans of bicycle tourism, and mountain biking. The history of its name is connected to a white cross erected on this spot. Although crossed by several tourist routes, Biely kriz is very well suitable for relax, psychical and physical regeneration. You can have a rest in the sun or purchase a light snack in a buffet standing nearby. The buffet was in the year 2003 badly damaged by fire, but has been fully reconstructed and nowadays is open for greater part of a year. A cottage in vicinity of the buffet serves as a clubroom.
